Welcome to Laoch Midwifery where Neva Gerke, LM, CPM  and Tiffani Hoffman, LM, CPM provide families with empowering midwifery care, customized to the needs of you and your family.  Laoch Midwifery PLLC is a birth center based midwifery service, located inside Tacoma's only freestanding birth center, The Birthing Inn


Laoch means warrior in Gaelic.  It's pronounced, "lay-ock".  Neva chose this name to reflect her belief that each pregnant person is a warrior in their own right.  They are the foundation of their families; they are the seat of communities.  They work tirelessly to keep their families safe and together every day throughout the world.  It is this fighting spirit that carries us through one of the most vulnerable times:  childbirth.
